Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment: Peer Mentor ProgramMarket Sector: Government Agencies
Achieving team cohesion among Peer Mentors and developing a strategic plan for the Peer Mentor program.
CDPHE contracted with SageRiver to bring the Peer Mentors together for team building and
strategic planning sessions. SageRiver designed customized team building sessions based on key stakeholder interviews and program coordinator input. Subsequently, we designed and facilitated their strategic planning process and produced their actionable strategic plan. Their strategic plan focused on allowing for shared resources, eliminating duplicate services, improving communication, and diminishing the impact of change in the tobacco prevention and control system.
Facilitated the group through teambuilding and strategic planning sessions mobilizing them in their communities around their common purpose of tobacco prevention and control in Colorado.
The Peer Mentor program is funded through CDPHE’s State Tobacco Education and Prevention Program (STEPP). This program is comprised of veteran tobacco prevention and control local health agency staff who are charged with providing capacity building to newer tobacco agency staff across the state.Tags: Change Management / Peer Mentoring / Strategic Planning / Team Building
